Acute inflammation is the body’s normal protective response to injury and is generally a short-term condition. However, when cells in the body experience ongoing low-grade or chronic inflammation, it can be harmful. This unremitting condition is often called “hidden inflammation” because it can go undetected for years, and research shows that it is responsible for many of the age-related diseases that plague our modern society.

When an injury or infection occurs, the body responds by producing an inflammatory response. This response calls in help from hormones and hormone-like substances to "rev up" inflammatory markers in order to respond in a healthy way. While this milieu benefits us in acute events such as injury, continous high levels of activity can lead to health concerns. Turmeric, quercetin, green tea extract, and other nutrients contain natural substances that interfere with these compounds. An adequate supply of antioxidants prevents further free radical damage, while bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, assists in catalyzing damaged tissue. Inflatrol® contains plant compounds, plant enzymes and specialty antioxidants to support a healthy inflammation response.
Quercetin is a naturally occurring bioflavonoid compound. Bioflavonoids are compounds that give color to fruits and vegetables, and are naturally found in foods such as apples, onions, green leafy vegetables, beans and citrus fruits. They can also be found in black and green teas, red wines and red grape juices. Some research studies suggest a positive link between quercetin intake and prostate function and health. Quercetin may help symptoms associated with prostatitis, as well as increase vitamin C absorption. Quercetin is also commonly supplemented to aid in joint health and for seasonal changes. Quercetin provides antioxidant protection from damaging free radicals and thus plays a natural role in maintaining optimal health...Full Details
Turmeric has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and has been consumed for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Several of the healthful inflammation response effects of curcumin are mediated through suppression of the expression of mediators produced by cells, all of which come from genes regulated by nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB). Black pepper and its principle component, piperine, aid in the absorption and bioavailability of curcumin. Finally, our organic turmeric is fermented using Lactobacillus acidophilus.
